    I have a 2002 model elantra.

    The first sign that something was wrong was when i was filling up with gas
    and i couldn't keep a steady flow without the pump clicking off as if i was
    full. After 2 fill ups that problem went away and i get the check engine
    light. The only thing i notice is a it takes a few more cranks directly
    after filling up with gas to get started but subsequent starts are fine.

    I had the light checked and they came back with the following..

    "P0441 Small EAVP System Leak"

    They cleared the light and 2 days later it's back on again.. of course
    they didn't solve the problem just the light. Is this a faulty gas cap or
    something else?

    It's probably either a faulty gas cap(mine only lasted 2 years), bad
    hose, or a defective pressure sensor. First item to check would be the
    gas cap, and the dealership should have pressure checked it when they
    had it in the first time.

    Re: Check Engine Light

    P0441 is not a code for a small leak. It's definition (no purge) is a
    misnomer. Your purge valve is likely stuck open, causing the feul vapors
    to continue to go into the intake when fueling.

    P0442 would indicate a small leak.

    Thanks for the replies.

    That makes sense hyundaitech.. and would explain why starting directly
    after filling up requires a few more cranks.
